It occurred to me, after the 6th time out shooting for this challenge, that abstract photography is the antithesis of what I normally do. My deepest apologies to my team for submitting them to dozens of potential entries. I think I got the hang of it with this one, but we shall see.

Although to me it's obvious what it is, this is a close-up of a yucca.

Never even suspected yucca. Beautiful (but it doesn't make me want to like my monitor. *grin*)

Well done, Johanna!

This one has a certain charge to it. Each line is so different from the others. Well done.
